New Rules for Marijuana Facility Workers Heads to Governor Parson’s Desk

A bill that would require workers in marijuana facilities to be fingerprinted and undergo criminal background checks is awaiting Governor Parson’s signature.

So far, only the owners of marijuana facilities have been required to submit their fingerprints to Highway Patrol.

Currently, workers have to have an agent ID badge, which can be obtained in a few days. Adding fingerprinting and background checks would extend the time between when an employee is hired and actually can begin work.
